LOCUST PROJECTS’ TENTH ANNUAL SMASH AND GRAB FUNDRAISER
Each year our event brings contemporary artists and collectors together to help support Locust Projects. The “Smash and Grab” event is Locust Projects’ largest source of revenue for the year. The proceeds provide essential funding for programming and special projects.
How it works: There is no other fundraiser quite like this one. The event revolves around a raffle , for which over one hundred local, national and international artists have donated artwork — enough so that each raffle ticket is guaranteed to win an artwork. Tickets are drawn at Random during the party, with the winner getting their choice of artwork (i.e, first called gets first pick, and so on). The result is a fun way to place artwork into collections, connect with Miami’s art community, and support Locust Projects.

Sean Dack's film Double Exposure will premiere at Tribeca Grand Hotel on Wednesday, October 5. There will be screenings at 8pm and 9pm. RSVP to info@fitzroygallery; seating is limited.
In Double Exposure, Sean Dack contrasts two worlds: Expo 2000 in Hannover (or rather, its relics); and the recently concluded World Expo in Shanghai. A duality forged over a decade. A decade that has seen immense change within the ever increasing globalized society, from the vast sweeping changes within online and media culture to the rising specter of international terror networks and lastly, the emergence of China as the newly predominant force of trade and economics, usurping the West's tight control of this sphere of influence.
Within this time frame we have two encapsulations of progress and culture. One is a remnant, a crumbling ruin, sitting in the middle of Germany. It is the 2000 World Expo site, and while a lot of the pavilions have been taken apart and shipped to their respective countries others have just simply been torn down or left to weather the elements with no upkeep to speak of. The site is a sprawling overgrown landscape and the only recent additions seem to be an Ikea simply because of the ample space available.
On the flip side of the scenario we have the World Expo in Shanghai, China: a huge undertaking of scale, proportion and of course, capital. Each country's pavilion and its content is tightly controlled by the Chinese authorities while still becoming total a spectacle hoping for the progress of unreachable utopia. The sheer mass of people who have visited the site (mostly Chinese) is staggering and the long wait lines and tedious time spent idling and not actually experiencing anything from the various world's cultures could be a metaphor for our rapidly shrinking world, the overcrowding of this small planet and the unsustainability of our current trajectory as a people.
The Hannover site is a time capsule. While it is looking backward it simultaneously becomes a projection into the future. "The future of now that simply snuck up on us." The Shanghai portion therefore occupies present, past and future. One is informed by the past and can see where the future is heading. It doesn't look as promising as we might be led to believe.
